One of the most photographed places in Myanmar must be this Ubein-bridge. It's very attractive, specially with sunsets. The legend goes that all the teak for this bridge was actually for building a palace for mr. Ubein. But the guy got really dronk someday and was eaten by a tiger. Then they used the teak to build this bridge over the lake as a memorial for Ubein. This bridge is 1.2 km long.

Incredible shot. Superb in graphical appeal, the silhouettes of the people crossing & the poles of the bridge against the sunset colours are just superb. I'll put this into my favourites

Fantastic composition and the lighting is amazing.
Love biking, so it was to be one of my favorites.

nice to see these 3 ladies with their bike on this fabulous bridge.
With your picture, we can think this is a very quiet place lost somewhere in the world but when I was there, there was maybe 100 photographers around me and even one man with 3 or 4 big cameras around his neck :)
Superb picture, I add it to my theme.

I have seen a number of pictures of this beautiful place here on TE but it will take a lot to beat this. Absolutely perfect setting for sunset with the silhoutte of the bridge and the people crossing them.

Stunning photo. The color is just right. I really like how the womens' hats add so much to the authenticity of this photo. Very well done.
